Editorial Director Vicky Blunden has acquired World All Language rights (excl. French and German) in two series by established historical novelist Clare Flynn. The Penang series will publish in ebook and paperback in October 2023, with the first in a new series set in the run-up to WWI, The Colour of Glass, publishing in ebook, paperback and audio in November 2023.

Clare Flynn is the author of fourteen books and is loved by readers of historical fiction for her epic, sweeping novels set during vividly realised turbulent times, often in exotic locations. The Colour of Glass is a spellbinding story of love and rebellion that unfolds against the backdrop of the Arts & Crafts movement and the campaign for women’s suffrage.

Flynn says,

“I’m thrilled to be signing with Storm and so excited to be working with my talented editor Vicky Blunden. Vicky’s enthusiasm and energy won me over immediately and I can’t wait to begin work with her. It’s great to be a part of this innovative and growing new company and I look forward to collaborating with Vicky and the Storm team to bring new readers to my Penang series and develop my new World War One series.”

Blunden says,

“I’m a huge fan of Clare Flynn’s captivating novels and so looking forward to publishing these beautiful books, which transport readers to another time and place, and into other lives with great sensitivity and skill. Clare is hugely talented and already has a wide readership, which we’re keen to expand further so that even more readers can enjoy her exceptional books.”
